it is likely caused by:

$(eval $(call gb_Library_add_ldflags,pyuno_wrapper,-nostdlib))

see the lengthy comment above the line in
for why it is needed to avoid linking in libstdc++.

although actually nowadays (c007292ec3eedcf2b1ad673308fa42aad31a7333) we
could probably remove that line, since we now use gcc not g++ to link if
the library has only C objects.

... have just pushed 6121703620ed344b181a9f07a7262a664477a209 to revert
that, should fix your problem.
